Lets get you a better idea about what features it provide.

Get Kids-Friendly Resources using this Parental Control Extension for Google Chrome:

eSafely extension for Google Chrome provides kid-friendly access to Youtube, Facebook, and Wikipedia. For these, it works as explained below.

Friendly Access To Facebook

Facebook is one of the most visited social networks. But apart from providing you with a platform for socializing and accessing invaluable information, this social networking site is one of the most vulnerable platforms when it comes to Cyber Bullying. Along with this, there have been instances of fake ID’s which also indulge in posting inappropriate content online which can be accidently accessed.

For those unsolicited posts, this parental control extension will block them from being opened or viewed from your profile.

Another functionality or you can say security it provides here is in the Facebook Chat. For the instances of Cyber Bullying, offending someone, the extension when installed will filter all the Chats.

If there is any such instance, it will block such content from appearing and will notify the user with ’Please be Polite’ message.

Youtube Safety

For Youtube, this parental control extension will change the Safety settings to ‘ON’.

If there is some inappropriate content as a result of a search,  then usually a message like ‘This content may be inappropriate and you would have to sign in to confirm your age’ appears and by following the Sign In procedure we are able to view it. This extension, on the other hand, would just filter such searches and such results won’t appear anymore.

Safe Web and Image Search

This Chrome extension, once installed will work with any of the search engines you are using to search a particular web resource or image. The extension works with its partner portal search.clearch.org to provide you with adult free and appropriate content.

If you are searching for Image or Web resource, then search.clearch.org will search it for you, providing you only the adult free content. No matter which Search Engine you are using to get a particular Resource, this extension will enable search using search.clearch.org.

If any one tries to search for a some offending material, search.clearch.org won’t just allow it

Wikipedia searching

For Wikipedia, this parental control extension would just filter all the searches and won’t allow any inappropriate content or images to appear, providing you with adult free and suitable content.

Other Inappropriate sites

In addition to these features, which have been mentioned here, if you open any other inappropriate website or try to open any inappropriate or adult content which is not Kid Friendly, then this extension would just won’t allow it to open. Any inappropriate images or videos would be blocked from being opened. This further adds and enhances the capability of the extension.
